    Sweet, wiggly and wobbly, Maggie is looking for a forever home!

    Maggie is a beautiful blue Great Dane looking for a loving home to live out the rest of her years. Maggie is incredibly friendly and happy and loves meeting new people. She adores spending time with other dogs! Maggie does have a condition known as wobblers, a malformation of the cervical vertebrae that causes an unsteady gait and some physical lameness in dogs. Despite her condition, Maggie gets around really well and loves to exercise, play and go for walks on and off leash, she just looks a little tipsy while doing it! As she suffers some physical lameness at times, occasionally Maggie needs some accommodations, like a boot or sock on her foot to keep her from dragging her foot in a repetitive position and causing herself harm. Putting a boot on her and monitoring her movements and wear on her body are about the extent of the accommodation she requires, she’s not on any medications nor in any pain or discomfort! Maggie would make a great addition to any home that loves gentle giants! Maggie would be fine with children but she is a bouncy, energetic dog with a happy tail…children should be monitored when Maggie is active and excited as her tail is happy and known to bruise a few adult thighs when wagging and would be right at face height for younger children.
